View Full Version : Sent out novel to beta readers today

I've been working on my fantasy novel for months now, writing the damn thing and then editing it down from 110,000 words to 83k. Today I sent it out to the first wave of beta readers. I've had people read over my stuff before, but usually just short stories or snippets. This is the first time I've ever asked someone to look at an entire novel. It's both scary and exciting. Even if they tear it apart, I feel like I'm coming further along in my goal to getting published :).
